Escherichia coli ribosomal RNA (rRNA) operons contain antitermination motifs necessary for forming terminator-resistant transcription complexes. In preliminary work, we isolated 'antiterminating' transcription complexes and identified four new proteins potentially involved in rRNA transcription antitermination: ribosomal (r-) proteins S4, L3, L4 and L13. We(More)
Similarities between lambda and rRNA transcription antitermination have led to suggestions that they involve the same Nus factors. However, direct in vivo confirmation that rRNA antitermination requires all of the lambda Nus factors is lacking. We have therefore analyzed the in vivo role of NusB and NusG in rRNA transcription antitermination and have(More)
